CrystalLite Inc. developed Solar Smart, a chain-drive operator system designed for use with awnings, hopper windows and skylights. The device is remote operated, battery powered and solar charged, so it can be used without any additional power and wiring from the building. The efficient hardware and software design allows for a small solar power panel—about 6 inches by 7 inches. The handheld remote includes a bidirectional feedback display that provides the open/close status displayed in percentage, operator and remote battery levels, solar charge rate,
temperature automatic function, and several other advanced programming options. A single remote can be paired with one or multiple operators within range.
